Do you know that your drinking is out of control? Has it affected your personal life? Even your relationship with yourself? Do you know there is more discreet help that does not require a rehab stay? This will allow your lifestyle to continue as you are eased out of your alcohol addiction with hypnotherapy.
Alcohol Abuse Is Often Silent and Misunderstood
Alcohol abuse can be sneaky. If you are finding that you have let one glass of wine become two, then three, and then there you are with the never-empty-glass of wine, it’s time to think that you are probably over-doing it.
Alcohol is a drug.
It impacts and damages your brain as well as many other organs. It can be an insidious habit where it creeps up on you and there you are, drinking yourself to sleep and waking up feeling lousy. If you’re wondering if you are drinking too much, you probably are.
Here are a few truths about alcohol dependence…do any of them sound familiar?
- You think you’re drinking to relax, escape from an unpleasant reality, relieve pain, energize yourself, or to bond with friends.
- Drinking makes you feel that you can assert your individuality, have more confidence, or to give yourself a little treat at the end of the day.
- When you are stressed, the first thing you reach for is alcohol.
- You cannot get through a day without drinking.
- You keep the extent of your drinking a secret.
How to tell if you’re really addicted to alcohol or need help dealing with stress:
When you can’t stop without experiencing signs of withdrawal, such as:
- physical discomfort such as getting sick, headaches, or body pains
- obsessing on behavior or alcohol
- constant and intense desire to return to your drinking when not drinking.
Don’t spend any more time struggling against alcohol!
Addictive behavior doesn’t happen out of the blue
Many who become alcoholics may have a genetic predisposition. Many self-medicate to ease life’s stressors. Many families show shared tendencies, whether it’s learned or inherent. Most alcoholics have learned to numb themselves from stress rather than dealing with it directly.
Hypnotherapy helps in reducing any initial discomfort as well as to lay good foundations for happy and peaceful, emotionally sober living.
Traditional alcoholic therapies aren’t enough
- In-patient programs give the alcoholic a good foundation and a good head start.They have help getting through withdrawal and they are given the tools but once they get back into the “real world” the same habits resurface. To avoid relapse, patients need more.
- Twelve Step Programs used alone have the highest rate of recovery but it is only 22%. The value of twelve-step programs and other kinds of support groups cannot be underestimated. These groups provide the daily, 24-hour support and structure that the addict needs to form new ways of dealing with life. Other addicts who have achieved sobriety provide the support needed. There is no cost. You can’t beat that.
However, many studies show using hypnotherapy in addition to the Twelve Step Program results in up to 87% success. Hypnotherapy provides the individualized and specific reprogramming that each person needs to be clean and sober.
Hypnotherapy provides that “something more” for alcoholism
Hypnotherapy stops the cravings, helps the addict through the physical and emotional discomfort while helping him discover and deal with the feelings he is avoiding.* It is the missing piece of the puzzle.
